More Dark is a 2D platformer that allows you to control minor demons. The ruler of darkness went on vacation and confused the kingdom. His daughter is not a slack person and orders you to get things done right away.
Well, I probably exaggerated the game in its first description, because that’s a premise, but the plot isn’t really a noticeable part of it. Darker.. It’s a little awkward to throw at you while you’re playing. So instead of focusing on it, let’s take a look at the gameplay.
More Dark gameplay is very simple. For the most part, you can only walk, jump, and push the crate. There are upgrades that you get on a regular basis. For example, a slime ball that can jump twice as high, a bomb that can blow up a marked block, and a magnet that can reverse gravity are all fairly standard platform elements.
There are 60 levels with some mini-games and boss battles scattered around, but most of the levels are simple puzzles. And simple means really simple. They aren’t complicated by the spread of imagination, and regardless of your suitability for platformers, More Dark probably won’t take more than a couple of hours to get through.
Almost all levels consist of jumping to the head of one or two enemies, unlocking the exit door. After that, all you have to do is get to that exit. You also need to push some boxes so that you can climb around the level. As you acquire new abilities, the puzzle begins to change slightly, but the main challenge at almost all levels is to arrange things so that you can climb out of the area.
At the start of the game, mobility is restricted to jumping over a block gap at a height of one block. This makes it very easy to see how the crate needs to be placed. If you need to make a wall that is two blocks high, you need one crate in its place. If you need to go up 3 blocks, you will need 3 crates. Most levels are just a matter of moving the crate into place, and once moved, it’s rarely in the way.
However, if you accidentally move the crates too close to the wrong wall or too close to each other, you will need to restart the level. The crate moves incredibly easily, so it is not uncommon to accidentally hit the crate once or twice and put it in the wrong place. I think it’s good that the puzzle is simple. You need to reboot because it only takes a minute or two to follow the steps.
When all was said, my playthrough in More Dark ended with about an hour and a half playtime, and there were only a few levels that actually took some thought to understand. Most of the death was caused by impatience. When I tried to do things faster than I expected, I jumped too fast or cut a corner when I passed the level, and I died. I think More Dark is a good game for a little younger people who are interested in puzzle games, but the theme is obviously sexual and violent, so it can’t be a game especially for kids.
There are usually some boss battles that can help you confuse things, but they are just a few of the weirdest boss battles I’ve encountered on platformers. Like other enemies, these guys need to jump to do damage. This makes sense. What doesn’t make sense is that each wins with 10 hits. The battle remains the same, it doesn’t get complicated or difficult, it’s just a boring encounter drawn out instead.
There is also a mini “ball bounce” style game that appears randomly after a while. I don’t really understand why it’s included in the game because it’s so detached from everything else, but it seems to be a repetitive theme throughout the playthrough.
More Dark does nothing unique and special, and it’s neither particularly challenging nor fun to do. One of the things that works is that it gives a simple 1000 gamer score, but otherwise it’s just annoying. The mechanics are okay, but they aren’t in the best mood, the plots aren’t special, and even the menu system is poorly set.
A word of advice – As soon as I won the game, I realized I missed the result. So I went back to level selection and saw what I could do to fix it. I accidentally clicked on the “New Game” option and immediately moved to the first level. I immediately backed out and confirmed that all the saved data was gone without being prompted to confirm the deletion of the saved data etc. At that point my only idea was to thank the god I had already defeated it.
All I can say is that if you need a simple 1000 gamer score and you have an hour or two to kill, More Dark on Xbox It may be a game worth picking up. It’s nothing special, but it’s not a completely miserable experience. Everything worked fine and at the moment it’s more than can be said in some triple A games.
